Mahama's State of the Nation Address disappointing - NPP

The Acting Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Freddie Blay has described the State of the Nation's Address delivered by President John Mahama as disappointing.


"I've heard a lot of state of nation's addresses; this for my perspective is the most disappointing State of Nation I've heard in the house, because there was more heat and very little substance," he told Accra-based Citi FM.

President Mahama in delivering the State of Nation Address on Thursday, touted several achievements his administration has chalked in education, politics, as well as in the economy.

But the Acting Chairman of the NPP believes those achievements are rather 'mediocre'.

"...You've made roads here, build hospitals there, infrastructure here and so forth. Any government does that anyway; it is a sign of mediocrity. He need not come and tell everybody," Freddie Blay added.


He lamented why the president spent little time on the economy but rather defended his stance on achievements he has chalked on corruption issues over the years.
